The paper analyses deformation processes occurring in channels of regulated streams and discusses the reasons of their occurrence. As the study results have shown, the most frequent deformations of regulated streams include the erosion of slopes, accumulation of sediment in the channel, and the overgrowth of the channel with grass, bushes and woody vegetation. Deformations occurring due to the effect of different natural phenomena determined the changes of stream channels in cross‐sectional and

The paper presents analysis of current situation and discusses different possibilities of the naturalization of regulated streams.
